Anterior mi's: All MIs are associated with arrhythmias. This happens because of the changes in conductivity of cardiac muscle from the dead and ischemic muscles. This is conducive to the formation of many kinds of arrhythmias.

See doctor: Vaginal bleeding while you are pregnant is a sign you might be having or had a miscarriage. If you think you had a miscarriage, you should see your doctor. They will be able to do an ultrasound to check the contents of your uterus. You should also know what type of blood you have as you might need an injection called Rhogam to prevent future problems. I am sorry for your loss.

Tested by psichiatri: You should ask this question from your doctor why he called the shrink to check you.And ask the shrink why he is there and what does he think is wrong with you.I suggest you should ask questions from any doctor about your diagnosis, treatment and why consults with a specialist.

A female asked:

I was wondering if otitis intera can begin to grow into externa, and how long it can go on while being un/mis-diagnosed?

Possible: Any infection can spread. However, I don't see how you got diagnosed with otitis interna. In fact, I've never heard of it. I've heard of otitis MEDIA, but it rarely causes otitis externa. I've never seen that, anyway. The two can occur concurrently, but they are treated differently.
